    Painted wheels

    '

    Re: Painted wheels

    I love it!

    this is my future colour combo,with terracotta interior!

    ciao

    Re: Painted wheels

    Is this seal grey or silver GT?!?

    Re: Painted wheels

    Why do they not paint the whole wheel . Leaving the rim unpainted makes it look like it has white walls .

    Re: Painted wheels

    I'm not a fan myself - although maybe I'd like it more if it was in black.

    Re: Painted wheels

    Love it looks cool

    Re: Painted wheels

    Here is what I am talking about when they color coat the whole wheel [image][/image] [image]

    I wonder what it would look like

    The width of the inside rim (inside of the cylinder) always looks messy and spotty from brake dust and dust-laden water marks. I wonder what it would look like to paint that area matt black. Talking about the area -behind- the spokes.

    Re: Painted wheels

    Steve,

    This is the most beautiful Porsche color..... Seal Grey.

    Re: Painted wheels

    Those complete Black Wheels on the Yellow 997 are REALLY UGLY IMHO !! The outside rimline should have been ALU, as you can see on the PORSCHE PAINTED WHEELS on the Seal Gray Cab, those look really good. Sorry

    Re: Painted wheels

    I agree and don't like black wheels. The wheels at the top are really nice though. I wonder if the paint is as durable as the normal wheel finish though???

    Re: Painted wheels

    The factory painted wheels are NOT powder coated and the paint tends to chip if something hits it just like the paint on the body.

    I have seen some painted wheels that have been chipped and it really doen't look good .

    Re: Painted wheels

    The Seal Gray Cab looks fantastic, the wheels are a definite plus.

    cheers!

    Re: Painted wheels

    That is a really NICE one!! THNX ron

    Re: Painted wheels

    Anyone else notice the clear side markers on the seal grey cab? In my opinion, they make the car look much better than the yucky, standard, orange ones ... Are those going to come standard or are they some sort of Porsche Exclusive option?

    They are standard for the European models, not sure about the US version.

    Re: Painted wheels

    Is there any way of having the wheels painted afterwards ?
    If I would have known earlier, I definetly would have ordered my car with this option.

    Re: Painted wheels

    Not a problem...and probably cheaper than the factory ones...Find a good bodyshop, and have them do it...

    Re: Painted wheels

    Yes, not a problem at all. As it has been said, go to any good bodyshop.
